[802SEC] RE: Music at the Albuquerque Social

Title: Message

When I saw this I though fantastic, an alternative to a mariachi band.  The seemingly obligatory mariachi band in Albuquerque is for me almost as bad as the hotel room challenges.


As long as I am dumping on meeting locations, please note the following relevant to March/Florida, how about an 802 led boycott of Florida?


The state of Florida is mulling a rule that could result in taxation of computer networks - both WAN and LAN.

The rule is taking businesses by surprise, according to a story in the Orlando Business Journal:

The article says the state would tax networks 9.17%, and local districts could add their own tax to it. What exactly would be taxed? Either the lease payments or annual depreciation of network equipment, according to the article.

Enjoyed talking at lunch today.

Thanks a lot for your offer to provide live music and a demo of the Gibson Ethernet Guitar at the 802 Social. 


The folks to actually discuss the offer with are the meeting and therefore the Social planners who are:

Dawn C. Slykhouse, IEEE 802 Conference Organizer


Face To Face Events, Inc.

2699 Iversen Court

Santa Clara, CA. 95051

Tel: 408/241-8906

Dawn is the professional meeting planner who actually runs the plenaries. She is local.
Buzz is the Executive secretary of IEEE 802 and overseeing meeting arrangements is his job.

I'm not just sure how they divide up duties on planning for the entertainment at the social, but I suggest that you call Dawn as a first point of contact.

I hope to see you again soon,

Best regards,
